Movies with the Best Car Chase Scene

It may be one of the most used and abused movie cliches, but when done correctly, the car chase scene can be the highlight of any film. This list is a collection of the movies that did the car chase scene correctly.

The Top Ten

1 Bullitt

The original car chase right here. Great cars, great camera angles. Still better than car chases today! - gibsonrock53

They keep reusing the soundtrack from this to try and improve all the wanna be car chases in lesser films. It's pretty funny to hear Steve's double clutching when the hero is driving an automatic Chevy. - dumbasilook

The coolest cars and the coolest camera angles

Saw the movie in 1068, and shortly after went out and bought a 1968 Mustang Fastback (for $3000 Canadian, right out of the show room)

2 Matrix Reloaded

The most spectacular car chase scene in movie history, with never seen images - MatrixGuy

Pure CGI car chase. Doesn't deserve to be at rank number two.

The greatest chase scene in movie history

3 Ronin

The best realistic chase scene. Feels like you are right
In the action. Even us Yanks like it. If French were so great it would be La Google. "Oui?"

La Peripherique... need one say more, except here they do it the wrong way round!
(And for all you stupid Yanks, look it up on Google! )

Probably the most realistic car chase scene ever.

Maneuvering in the tightest alleys and car on the wrong side
It should be in first place

4 The Blues Brothers

Physics? What the heck is physics? Everything in that last car chase was ridiculously excessive and illogical, and because of that, it is hands down the best one I've ever seen. I could not stop laughing! I had to watch the whole thing over and over again. Just fantastic!

You can't compare anything to being chased down by a country band, American Nazis, the police, the military, and tons of other groups of people.

that scene through the mall is a classic - feedurhead4

Great chase scene with the 2 best car pileups ever!

5 The Fast and the Furious

holy crap, that film, was so freakin amazing. tuned cars, lots of explosions, awesome music, it was intense. i've never seen better. #1 all the way

6 The Bourne Identity

The one in Bourne Supremacy is better when he's in the taxi cab. This is still a good car chase scene though. - expertCritic

Spectacular and realistic car chase scene, the best I've seen out of any movie, including Matrix, Ronin, Italian Job, etc.
Not over the top (special effects such as The Matrix) and believable.

7 Transporter
8 Gone in 60 Seconds

he does hiw OWN stunts people. That make all the difference - Ravergirl

It's not just about the chase its about the car and come on who doesn't like that mustang

What a great scene! Nick cage was so convincing, and it really is becoming a classic.

all the way throuh the hole
- lookabird

9 The French Connection

How THIS MOVIE didn't make the top ten list tells me that WAY too many kids are voting on this website......

I agree. The only movies this thirteen year old kids ever saw is the "Fast and furious" crap.

This should be #2

10 The Italian Job (2003)

Nothing compared to the original... No CGI in sight! The original also had the scene with the car being pushed off the cliff

Since this movie, the mini cooper became my dream car - BigZ

of course

but remember thecrash in blues brothers 2000
simply the greatest - Cantonez

The Contenders

11 Death Proof

Uh... no CGI, and Zoe Bell trying to stay on the hood of the car at speeds in excess of 100 mph... do me a favor, watch it and then come back and vote.

12 Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

The best, most destructive car/truck/everything chase scene of all time.

13 The Bourne Supremacy

One of the best ever in my opinion. Even the scenes where he wrecks and crashes into other vehicles seems very realistic. Kudos to the director and crew who shot that. - expertCritic

With out a doubt the best car chase ever, it has my head wrecked trying to find the song to it

The best car chase of all time with the greatest ending ever.

One of the best car chases thats actually realistic.

14 Bad Boys II

The best chase scene ever

15 Smokey and the Bandit

To not make this in the top spot is a crime. The whole movie is a car chase! - Baltimore1993

Great movie, lots of car chase scenes. Should be higher. - expertCritic

Can't beat a movie that is a car chase. - Stalin

16 Vanishing Point

Classic. Amazing. Sad that this isn't on the top 10.

The best, hands down!

Next to Bullit the most badass car in the history of chases. - dumbasilook

17 Quantum of Solace

The car chase at the beginning in super fantastic! This should be in the top tens.

Why is it not on top 10

18 The Dark Knight

Car chases don't come better than this. At all.

19 Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny


20 To Live and Die in L.A.

Car chase on a highway, where the cars are moving AGAINST the flow of traffic.

Carchase in the river! Not only a great charchase, a film out of the ordinary in more than one sense!

21 The Seven-Ups

One of the GREATEST car chase scenes of all time...Roy Scheider was great in this movie...check it out, youngsters.....

22 The Fast and The Furious - Tokyo Drift

Dude! the best car-chase scene ever seen!

It's got chasing and cool drifting

23 Dirty Mary Crazy Larry
24 Wanted
25 Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

The pursuit of the tanker truck is pure action and violence, well-filmed and well-choreographed. You can watch it again and again and again.

The first real car chase scene in history and is still unmatched by all of the above. 15 minutes was how long the last chase scene took towards the end.

26 What's Up Doc?

Yep. A wild chase through the streets of San Francisco.

27 Raising Arizona
28 Brewster McCloud
29 The Dukes of Hazzard

Lest just say its about the series, becouse the movie was aweful. in the series tough its probeply tied or above bullit!

30 Baby Driver

Great chase scenes but wheres 2012 drive?

31 The Driver

Anyone who votes this lower than anything above, must not have seen it

32 Batman Begins

"He's Flying On Rooftops", is what they screamed as Batman launched the legendary machine from rooftop to rooftop. How sick is that! - juriah

"He's Flying On Rooftops", is what they screemed as Batman launched the legendary machine from rooftop to rooftop. How sick is that! - juriah

33 Terminator 2 - Judgment Day
34 Death Race

HELLO! it's cars with guns! - pierrerock

35 Running Scared (1986)
36 The Rock

San Fran roads, a Hummer, a Ferrari, plenty of cop cars, and a Trolley added in for good measure

Ok but almost a copycat of Bullit. So therefor a lack of originality.

37 The Hitcher (2007)
38 The Chase

the whole entire movie is the car chase

39 Fast Five

What come on this chase is so cool

40 Ong-Bak - The Thai Warrior
41 The Island

Perhaps one of the most over the top, intense chase scenes

42 Fast & Furious 6
43 Fast & Furious
44 Mission Impossible 2
45 Thelma and Louise

. . . not bad for a woman driver! Love that movie!

46 The Stone Killer
47 Rush Hour 3

the french taxi driver and his little bits are really funny. - quote2000

48 Gone in 60 Seconds (1974)

Wooden acting, but a forty minute car chase with a 1973 Mustang. What's not to love? Way better than the piece of crap 2000 remake.

49 Violent City

This early 70's Italian movie with Charles Bronson got a breathtaking carchase in it. Done with real cars, real drivers and no computer tricks.

50 Pineapple Express

Slushie all over the windshield and Saul's foot sticking out of it, and they still manage to evade Rosie Perez' corrupt cop.
